Montecito Trails Foundation 2016 Annual Meeting to Announce New Board, Host Special Presenters

Montecito Trails Foundation will hold its annual meeting at the Santa Barbara Polo Club, located at 3300 Via Real Carpinteria, Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016, at 5:30 p.m. 

The public meeting will introduce new officers and board members, followed by updates on the MTF trails, which will include discussions of El Niño preparations.

The meeting will also highlight the recent travels of three members of the Back Country Horsemen of America. 

Otis Calef and Richard Waller will give a special presentation on their experience riding a portion of the Old Spanish Trail, a historical trade route that connected the northern New Mexico settlements near or in Santa Fe with Los Angeles and southern California.

Waller commented, “This trip served a dual purpose. One: to promote the Back Country Horsemen of America and their mission to protect public lands. It’s also to support the Old Spanish Trail Association and the Old Spanish National Historic Trail.”

Calef, Waller and Jim Clark rode approximately 800 miles of the 1,200-mile long trail. The presentation and Q&A session is expected to last 45 minutes. 

Alexis Gold is a publicist representing the Montecito Trails Foundation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
